Two African-Americans have resolutions pending at the General Assembly at Columbia, South Carolina.One is to establish "A Eartha Kitt Day in S.C. and the other is to name U.S.Highway 301 from Interstate 26 to Homestead Road to honor the late political figure Thomas Moss. Both South Carolinians have contributed greatly to South Carolina and beyond.One wishes that both resolutions are confirmed. I am a native of Orangeburg, South Carolina.Thanks I hope others would support these important resolutions.

Black History- Dr. Richard R. Green left an indelible mark on education.He was the First African American superintendent of the Minneapolis Public School System.He was the first Chancellor of New York City,s Board of Education.Dr.Green treasured everyone who served children,said Rosa Bogar,who developed the "Green Tree Award" at Richard R. Green Central Park school in Minneapolis in 1995.Today nineteen students have received the award. This is just one way to keep the legacy of this great educator,s alive said Bogar,who worked in the Mpls.System for thirty years.

I am honored to say that the Mayor of Minneapolis proclaim May 27th 2011 "Dr. Richard R. Green Day in the City of Minneapolis" Dr. Green was the first African-American supertendent of the Mpls.Public Schools and the first African-American Chancellor of New York City's schools.This May 27th would have been Dr. Green,s seventy-fifth birthday. This is a worthy tribute. Rosa Bogar

The one thing blacks contribute to the most in South Carolina is crime and they are the primary reason why SC scores so low with regards to education.

I am nost proud that I completed my mission to deliver the banner to a school in NYC that honors the late Dr. Richard R. Green's namesake.This has been seventeen years of legacy,I feel this act of commitment will be carried on in NYC where more than five schools bears his name Dr. Green was a great educator.
